    GPG Spot-lighting at Night (Part 1) Went for a wander with the torch last night, and see who I found floating next to a filter outlet - Yes! "G for George" in all his his grey glory ! He seems happy enough, but is extremely shy during the day. Grover (fish hunting by torch-light again later in the week)

    Robo-Gourami Wanted... Saw this today - Robotic Fish and thought the GPGs could give robo-fish "What For" in the Billabong. Grover (on the hunt for fishie technological advances) Another article in "WIRED" has this quote (ha ha) - "Thus the fluid energizes the fish. But it also acts as a traditional hydraulic fluid, in that it transmits force in the tail and pectoral fins. When the pumps push the fluid to the fins, they bend back and forth to propel the robot. The pectoral fins work in the same way to steer the fish left and right.This doesn’t move the robot particularly quickly, mind you: The fish can cover about one and a half body lengths per minute. “It would definitely get eaten if it were in the ocean,” says Shepherd."

    EOI - Champsochromis spilorhynchus colony

    HI all, I have a small group of Champsochromis spilorhynchus (4 fish) I am looking to move on. They are roughly 15 to 18cm in length with a couple of definite males and the other 2 are unknown. These guys need a fair bit of space, and when they fully mature, are spectacular. Pm me if you have any interest. Not really sure on value given they are not hugely common. Can send picks if requested. Cheers, Craig

    Border Collie meets Goldfish Small problem today.... the BC went for a long throw ball in the backyard and hit the wading pool. As its been in the sun for 2years the pool promptly split washing flappy goldfish at the Dog. Who just as fast turned tail and ran from the deluge. I now have 6 free large pond goldfish to go to good home. Send me a PM, else I will throw them back in the Billabong with the GPGs. Cheers. Grover

    hi and welcome, by the looks of it the piece out of his head seems to be healed over ,so it will more than likely stay,,,i doubt its genetic so if your rams breed at any stage the chance of passing it on is slim to none. the only thing about your setup is the heater may be too large ,100 w is usually for about 100 litres and when it turns on may give you temperature spikes which could be detrimental to your fishes health....just keep an eye on the temp and see what happens

    Bristlenose Catfish Breeding

    Hi all I'm a newbie looking after my wife's 60 litre aquarium which started off with what we thought were two male catfish, but one must have been female, as it has now become a Bristlenose breeding ground, with many small fry and several which are surviving to become around 2cm long. I'm not in this hobby to breed Bristlenose, nor do I have the capacity. Is anyone out there interested in adopting them, including the female? I can't tell exactly how many there are but it's at least a dozen or more. I just want to go keep one or two male catfish. I've included a few photos. regards Brad

    60 mm panels!!!!!! WHAT SIZE TANK........
  12. 1 point
    Hi Crusty, If you look up the magnetic strength requirement, you can make your own DIY set. For example https://www.kjmagnetics.com/blog.asp?p=aquarium I bought a commerical floating rare earth magnet called Tiger Shark (has fake wood housing) for around AUD$145 which is quite powerful and handles 20mm acrylic panels well. Just make sure it floats or you will get particles between which will scratch your glass. I will be making my own magnets for 60mm glass later this year as I can't buy commercial models this size. Microfibre cloth which is easily replaced. If you want a cheap effective glass cleaning option, I use 30 x cheap chinese algae eaters (sucking cats) on a 10 x 3 x 3 size tank with predatory catfish. They are very fast and eat fish poo (which has undigested food) as well as clean the glass. It takes 3 -4 years for them to eventually get eaten but you can add more each year and some do grow big enough to last. I prefer the gold morph as they are extremely fast and difficult to net out. The gold form is easier to see & catch at night when they sleep.
